A LINE O'PIPE Stick to tb e Pipe—Let the Smoke Blow Where It Will HOME BUILDING The robim ([airy builds its nes Nor all the while, It worries not of shortages, or size pr style. It quickly finds material, AJU of the best. And woe/King steadily, it soon Ccinrpletes its nest. But pcqple when they start t build, J\' domicile, Find shortages on every hand, Tlo., cramp their style. Now cr ,uld it be that robins are Mi jre wise by far. The v hile it comes to building home/;, i.'han people are? VVhi(;h as we have mentioned jcfore, when it comes to home JuiW.njy, the robins are not much oncei-ned about shortages of »aerial. About the only thins that ets ''.hem down is a lack of mud 'hen they are building during a ry srpelL And people can help Hr,n a heap if they will let a little •after run on the ground and make J ittlc mud for the nest builders. __•_ Thought for today: Why is it lat the itching spot on one's back v always just where it cannot be cached with either hand. And if evolution is doing so men -to take care of physical needs of animals, how come it | has not evolved hands and arms that can reach the said itching spot?
